The Weather Company creating 400 jobs in DeKalb County

ATLANTA — The Weather Company, an IBM Business, will create 400 jobs and relocate its headquarters from Cobb County to DeKalb County in the spring of 2017.

“The Weather Company has made significant contributions in Georgia for more than three decades,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said in a news release. “The company’s decision to expand its workforce in the metro Atlanta area is a reflection of our state’s ability to retain dynamic companies with our business-friendly environment and highly skilled workforce. We look forward to our ongoing relationship with The Weather Company and its continued success in Georgia.”

The Weather Company, acquired by IBM in January, helps some of the world’s largest brands in aviation, energy, insurance and media, as well as government, anticipate and respond to the impact of weather on operations.
